Talk about a blast from the past! Hey, now!

Hope you're doing well, CP!

But, you'll never talk me out of the Other One from 12-29-68, as no one ever rehearsed it THAT way.

William Tell,
You're right, that 12-29-68 Other One kicks! I was out of my head to dismiss The Other One out of hand... it does make a great anthem for the band and The Magic Trip recently release doc on the Further Bus (but not having seen it, is it true they chose "Truckin'" as the official anthem of the era?).

Mainly, I like fast Grateful Dead stuff... complex and either punk (Cream Puff War, Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion, early Cold Rain And Snow) or psych (New Potato Caboose, Born Cross-Eyed [what are the lyrics to Born Cross-Eyed?) China Cat Sunflower... those are the ones I return to.
No, no I love that hook on The Other One, "...Comin' know it's comin'... comin' around..." and the eternal drum beat... done done duh duh done done...! Almost as good as two shaves and a haircut... maybe better!

Hey to Arbuthnot and all you other '66 freaks (you know who you are!)

The attached pics - me and girlfriends the night after going to The Carousel Ballroom; Crypt-keeper wearing familiar attire, and my pop in '68 paying dues at SF State.
